32 Years Ago Today

Thirty Two years ago today, our first child, our daughter, Gennifer Glen was born.  She has changed our lives forever, and brought us more joy than we ever could have thought possible.
Tonight when we were together for pizza and frozen yogurt, she informed me that I was not to be blogging any photos of her tonight.  So even though this was taken a few months ago, here she is...the birthday girl.
And here she is, opening her gifts tonight.
And more.
Apparently, she didn't want her photos to go on my blog post.
I have been thinking about Gennifer all day today.  Gennifer as a baby, as a toddler, a young girl, teenager, young woman, and the woman she is today.  We are so proud of you Gennifer!  Happy Birthday!!!  Love you SO Much!!!
XO  Mom

Happy birthday to your sweet girl! Her gift looks intriguing to me. Hopefully she will find something amazing in it and share it as I am always looking for something tasty that is glutten free these days.

Thank you for your sweet words and prayers Kris. I appreciate it more than you know.

Kris, Don't know how I missed this-oops! Happy Belated Birthday to Gennifer! Having seen her photos before, she is so beautiful-just like her mama. I love the book, you know I'm gluten free right? I am going to check this out on Amazon today.
Hope you had a wonderful celebration and are having a great week.
Hugs, Noreen

It seems my daughter, Libby and your daughter, Gennifer have a lot in common: they are camera shy and are May babies! Happy Birthday to her, all the best!:)

Happy birthday to Gennifer! My daughter will be the same age towards the end of this year :)
